Book Description

Everybody loves flowers, and here are 100 beautiful blooms for you to draw!

Whether you prefer the understated beauty of a simple daisy or the garish good looks of a flamingo lily, you're bound to discover a flower in this book that you will find irresistible and you will just want to pick up your pencil and start drawing! There are everyday garden blooms such as roses and tulips, delicate wild varieties such as primroses and bluebells, and a whole range of exotics, too, if you want to try something a bit different.

Each flower is broken down into six simple stages that lead you effortlessly through to the finished drawing. There are no written instructions to follow just basic shapes and pencil strokes. Even if you’ve never drawn anything before, you will be amazed at how quickly you will achieve incredibly impressive drawings. Every project also shows two finished examples of the flower one shaded with pencil and the other with colour.

This is the perfect book for budding artists yearning to draw their favourite posies, or the experienced artist looking for a variety of subjects to inspire.

The material in this book is taken from the following books in Search Press's successful How to Draw series: Flowers, Garden Flowers, Wild Flowers, Exotic Flowers.

About Penny Brown

Penny has always worked as a professional artist. She trained as a theatre designer at the Central School of Art and Design in London, then worked in theatres all over the country, designing scenery and costumes for productions varying from Shakespeare and Mozart operas to Peter Pan and The Jungle Book. An increasing love of drawing and painting led her to illustration. She started with craft and lifestyle books, working on how-to diagrams, decorative borders and details in pen and ink and watercolour. She then began to write and illustrate design source books for Search Press with the most recent ones being Art Nouveau, Celtic Art and Maori Designs.

Penny also worked on books on gardening and natural history, and the latter especially started to fascinate her more and more. In 2009 she enrolled on the Distance Learning Course with the SBA (The Society of Botanical Artists), which greatly developed her observational and painting skills, and in 2011 she graduated with a distinction and won the Award for Excellence. Since then she has exhibited with the SBA at Westminster Central Hall in London as well as in Europe, and was accepted as a Full Member in March 2013. She is also a member of the Society of Floral Painters and has exhibited with the SWSBA in Somerset and shown her work as part of Dorset Art Week. In 2014 one of her paintings was chosen for an exhibition on Fresh Water in the museum at the Fundacion Cidade da Cultura de Galicia in Santiago de Compostella.

Over the years she has worked for a wide range of publishers as well as Search Press, including DK, Liberty’s, Reader’s Digest, Lorenz Books, Guild of Master Craftsmen and David and Charles. Her work has, to date, appeared in over 75 books.

 She works in watercolour, pencil and sometimes pen and ink. Amongst her recent work is Botanical Drawings with Search Press (which has sold over 18,000 copies since 2018).

This is a beautiful collection of flowers for the beginner artist, with step-by-step instructions and clear illustrations. Each flower is broken down into six easy steps. By adding a few simple shapes a stage at a time, it is possible to create a very realistic drawing of a flower. There is then the opportunity to either create a shaded version either in pencil, or in colour.

There is such a wide variety of flowers within the 100 images, from African Blue Lily to Yellow Loosestrife, with examples of both wild flowers and garden flowers, each one with exquisite, but achievable detail.

Whether you are looking to improve your drawing skills or want to find a perfect way to relax, this delightful book is full of inspiration. Highly Recommended!
